Gregg Allman is one of the most iconic blues singers of all time, a certified rock star and member of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame who has been the voice of the Allman Brothers Band for over four decades. T Bone Burnett is the most celebrated producer in music today, winning a Grammy for Alison Krauss and Robert Plant's collaboration Raising Sand and producing everybody from Elvis Costello to Elton John and Leon Russell. What do you get when you combine these two legendary talents?

The answer is Low Country Blues, the finest roots-blues record in years. With the help of T Bone's usual gang of master musicians, including a memorable turn on piano by New Orleans' own Dr. John, Gregg sings the blues as only he can, and Burnett captures the magic with the clarity and purity that have become his hallmark as a producer. Gregg's solo efforts in the past have tended to be more song-oriented and less jam-focused than the Allman Brothers Band, and this is no exception. The emphasis is on vibe and feel, with Gregg squarely in the spotlight where he belongs.

The bulk of Low Country Blues consists of classic blues tunes, all showcasing Gregg's signature vocals and B-3 work, but the album also features "Just Another Rider," a great new song Gregg co-wrote with Warren Haynes. This plaintive anthem picks up where "Midnight Rider" left off, continuing the mythology of the wandering, road-hardened gypsy that has always been a part of Allman's persona.

Of the blues tunes, standout tracks include a positively fierce version of Muddy Waters' "I Can't Be Satisfied," with Gregg wailing the blues. Other highlights are the rollicking "I Believe I'll Go Back Home," the R&B joy of "Please Accept My Love" and the brooding seven-minute version of "Rolling Stone" that closes the album, but one of the best things about Low Country Blues is how it all flows together into one piece of music. It's a true album as opposed to a collection of songs, and it's hard to pick favorites from this record without feeling like you're leaving something out. Words like "timeless" and "classic" get thrown around too lightly sometimes, but this album would have sounded great in 1960, it sounds great now, and it will still sound great in 2060.
